Anyone have a good set-up if I'm going to be racing it in a VTA race series? Thanks.

Just that the T4'14 owners don't have to spend our time on forums asking about the latest 'fix' for an issue

I must say you got a point there. when I switched from a other car to XRay2012
I have plenty time to do other things, this is a boring situation and also for the wear of the drive train refilling shocks and diffs.
You can only help others with your finding for a set-up.

I hope Olly Jeffries find something special or a miracle or something similar.

I would start with the kit setup, but with 2.7 springs up front, .5 raised rear arm mounts and .5 in to take a bit of rear toe out. That will be a good starting point for it

First you need to tell what surface/size of track and motor you will run.

Sorry,

I Will drive stock classe. With a speedpassion 13,5t with Max ratio of 1:4,5. Most off time outdoor asphalt track.

And also at a carpet indoor track

Is the spur gear that comes with the kit 48dp or 64dp?

Has any body tried the wish bones plates yet? If so what did you think?

The Kit comes with 48dp 84t spur gear. For 4.5 fdr I would toss in a 64dp 100t spur with a 42t pinion.

The Mazdaspeed6 body should be a safe starting point.

Because you are running both asphalt and carpet I would get the full range of xray springs for the car. Two sets each to keep your tuning window open. That may seem overkill but asphalt and carpet, low or high grip can use very different springs. There are other spring kits available but I would stick with xray springs in order to be able to relate to most setups that people post.

I wouldn't add any option parts to the car out of the box. Just drive it and save the money for later when you have more experience with it to decide if you need anything else on it.

I have on highbite they work really good frnt and rear with the post no layshaft screws and on low to medium they work well on just the front. Plates on froont and rear on medium bites track took away to much traction imo

Agreed..... It makes a big difference on high bite, especially if you aren't running graphite arms.
